people is acceptance. People try so hard to find acceptance and
only end up playing games. Put on acts to get noticed. Strive to please
those who don't notice. Try to make changes in their lifestyle for the
benefit of others. In the end, whatever benefit is obtained on lies.
Lies that our acceptance is built on the approval of others.
Acceptance is built on the grace of God. Even more on the love of God.
Knowing that God accepts us how we are and His love is unconditional.
Knowing that God loves us enough to call us one of His own. There is
more to this acceptance than meets the eye. We have to accept what
God says about us and His views.
The real challenge is accepting them and stepping out in faith for a
life we deserve. To allow God's love to challenge us to new heights.
Acceptance is loving God enough to do what we need to do, to
let go of unnecessary sin. When we do, that is true acceptance.
